Staff Profile

Sangita Patel

Programme Manager

After nearly 10 years in a community development role at Leyton Orient Community Sports Programme I had a crazy couple of years working at London 2012 as Community Engagement Manager and the City Operations Manager which included everything from public consultation to managing protests to hosting dignitaries. I then went on to work at Premier League, as senior manager for the Charitable Fund. It was a privileged role of working with the 92 professional football club charities, supporting them with their organisational development and development of quality interventions.

When not working you can usually find me on a yoga mat in a hot room. And when I’m not in a hot room I like to run up hills.

Why Sangita works at Substance

I’m so lucky to be working on the first Social Impact Bond that uses sport and physical activity in England and this project brings together everything I’ve enjoyed about my work life – supporting with delivery organisations with quality interventions, using data and evidence to intelligently develop programmes and most importantly trying to tackle important social issues.
